Sunday Challenges

Hello and happy Sunday.
Today I had some time to make some cards for a few challenges.

My first card is for the Fusion Challenge which is a beach theme.
I played along with the sketch and the photo.

I have quite a few never been used stamp sets sitting there just waiting to be inked up. I thought the "By the Sea" stamp set from Catherine Pooler would be perfect for this challenge.  I stamped the beach huts in a row and coloured them in with Ohuhu Alcohol markers. I die cut the panel and added it to a top folding card base and stamped the sentiment underneath.




My next card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #374



I die cut the "Celebrate" from Catherine Pooler out of an alcohol ink panel and adhered it to the bottom of a card panel along with a party hat also from Catherine Pooler.


Thanks for visiting!

Fur babies leave pawprints on your heart!


Hello, I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today with a few cards I made using the "Rainbow Bridge" stamp set.


I started by stamping the sentiment in the middle of my card with Versafine black ink.
Then I used the largest of the paw print stamps and stamped in rainbow colours using Catherine Pooler Inks.  These cards took minutes to make, the hardest part was choosing the colours.









I hope you liked my cards today and don't forget you can use my special discount code below in the shop!
